Pricing flowers

Florists usually sell flowers at a 350% markup, meaning the wholesale cost of each flower multiplied by 3.5 and then multiplied by the number of flowers in a bouquet.

When pricing flowers to sell, you also want to factor in the cost of labor and supplies. If you make elaborate flower arrangements, you will want to charge extra for your time and skill.
